What foods could possibly be harmful to my dog?
Great question! It's very important to keep your dog protected from harmful foods. We checked in with veterinary technician Sharon Gardner and this is her advice:
- Chocolate, avocados, grapes, onions, coffee and alcohol are all common household foods that could be harmful to your dog.
- Refer to the ASPCA's list of foods and household items that could harm your pets and be sure to puppy-proof your home!
- Limit foods that wouldn't normally be in your dog's diet. That means keeping the human food to a limit.
- Refer to this list compiled by the ASPCA's Animal Poison Control to see exactly how certain foods and products will affect your pet.
